ENZYME entry: EC 1.21.99.5

Accepted Name
Tetrachloroethene reductive dehalogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Tetrachloroethene reductase.
Reaction catalysed
Trichloroethene + chloride + acceptor <=> tetrachloroethene + reduced acceptor
Cofactor(s)
Iron-sulfur.
Comment(s)
  • This enzyme allows the common pollutant tetrachloroethene to support bacterial growth and is responsible for disposal of a number of chlorinated hydrocarbons by this organism.
  • The reaction occurs in the reverse direction.
  • The enzyme also reduces trichloroethene to dichloroethene.
  • Although the physiological reductant is unknown, the supply of reductant in some organisms is via reduced menaquinone, itself formed from molecular hydrogen, via EC 1.12.5.1.
  • Methylviologen can act as electron donor.
  • Formerly EC 1.97.1.8.
